Discussion for Luke 12

  • RSK
    "...for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth." To often we wonder about the millionaires and billionaires in this world and look up to them in awe, but that is not how God looks at us. Seek God first and he will supply all our needs. What a powerful message.
  • Stephen Botts
    Verse 25: "And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?"

    This does not mean adding height. This means that by taking thought, you cannot prolong your life. You can't add one second to your life, so the Lord Jesus warns us to be ready always.
  • A disciple
    "And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?" The thoughts of men are that their possessions and wealth make their greatness: and so idolatry is one of the root sins and causes of all evil in the world. Neither our possessions nor our vain thinking makes us anything more than men.
  • Emanuel Fernandes
    I dont know what means but its not purgatory or reincarnation or anything between heaven and hell( apart from your physical life) its appointed of men once to die after this the judgement its heaven or hell thats it!
  • A disciple
    Paul; clearly the Lord here is talking about repentance and forgiveness, and having the wisdom to be prepared to meet our Maker! It only distracts from the intended point to try to find hidden meanings in things like whether this is referring to Purgatory. A good rule for understanding the Scriptures is to read them with respect to the whole context of what was written and apply that to ourselves.
  • Paul
    Is verse 59 referring to a pergatory? If not, what does it mean?
